So far I love my Impreza
Singing Kate, 4/20/2018
No one told me it would have a built-alarm system. That gave me a discount on my car insurance!
I desired a WRX, however reality dictated my pick
repeat multiple Subaru Consumer, 7/6/2018
I traded my 2010 Forester XT for a 2018 Impreza Sport as my wife traded her 2009 Out Back for a 2018 Forester... I fell in love with the color Oasis Island Pearl/Black- For me all the gauges except the speedometer at too small, as are the pictograms which are also confusing to me. On the plus side the harmon audio system is wonderful, I do miss the 6 C/D player my Forester had... Around town this is a great car, on the highway Rte 128 (Boston area) it seems to drift slightly. The keyless entry is sort of neat, however there is not a really a convenient spot to place the keys nor is there a logical place for a pair of glasses regular or sun. This vehicle has way to many whistles & bells for me, for a more tech savvy consumer (i.e.: younger) it should be perfect. At 125 miles on my odometer, I am not sorry for this purchase.
Nice car
Terry, 4/16/2018
Enjoy the car. Great ride, technology is great. Engine noise is low point
Fourth time is the charm!
Portia, 6/10/2018
This is my fourth Impreza. (My fifth Subaru) She handles like a race car, but is the safest car I have ever owned. I just love it. You will to.

More about the 2018 Subaru Impreza

Like many compact vehicles, the 2018 Subaru Impreza is sold as a sedan or a four-door hatchback. Its standard all-wheel-drive powertrain not only gives the Impreza the edge around tight mountain switchbacks, but it also keeps the car pointed straight ahead when the road gets wet.

Both Impreza body styles are offered in four distinct trim levels: base 2.0i, Premium, Sport and Limited. The base and Sport models come standard with a five-speed manual transmission while a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is optional on those and standard on the Premium and Limited. Under the hood of every model is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 152 horsepower on tap.

The base 2.0i is rather modestly equipped, with highlights that are mostly limited to a height-adjustable driver seat, a 6.5-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration. The Premium fares slightly better (and is perfect for colder climates), with alloy wheels, automatic wipers and headlights, a windshield wiper de-icer, heated front seats and a six-speaker audio system.

Upgrade to the Sport and you'll get larger wheels, a rear spoiler, sporty suspension tuning, keyless entry, a larger touchscreen and satellite radio. The top-dog Limited keeps the Sport's luxury items and ditches the sport stuff. It also adds leather upholstery, automatic climate control and a power driver seat. Subaru's EyeSight suite of driver aids is available on all but the base 2.0i. Its features include forward collision warning with automatic braking, lane departure mitigation and automatic braking if an object is detected in the car's path as it backs up. Blind-spot monitoring is also available.

We like the Impreza for its all-weather handling capabilities, roomy interior and widespread availability of driver aids. There are some drawbacks, including an underpowered engine, subpar cabin materials and real-world fuel economy that differs significantly from EPA estimates. The above issues aside, the Impreza is a fine choice if you need a practical sedan or hatchback and you see your share of inclement weather. Use Edmunds shopping tools to price and find the right 2018 Subaru Impreza for you.
